Chocolate Chip CookiesThese chocolate chip cookies truly are the best that I have ever had the pleasure to eat.  I am not alone in this claim!  My friends and family loves them, too.  In fact, some friends and family members get very disappointed when I fail to bring these cookies to family gatherings:-)  Now, I’m sharing the recipe, so that you all can make these cookies whenever you have a craving.


  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening (I prefer Crisco sticks)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (Mexican vanilla tastes great)
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (dark chocolate chunks are my favorite)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.  
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. 
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown.
  7. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
